Safeline Introduces Mobile Training Bus

April 2, 2007

Mettler-Toledo Safeline Inc. introduces its Mobile Training Platform – a customized motor coach with a variety of Safeline metal detectors and x-ray inspection equipment that travels throughout the United States year-round visiting food and pharmaceutical processing plants.

With this convenient training opportunity, the mobile training platform enables processors and packagers to easily gain hands-on experience with the latest in product inspection technology for their plants.

Onboard the bus are two x-ray inspection units and five metal detectors. The new AdvanChek is a powerful x-ray inspection unit that detects multiple contaminants such as metal, stone, bone, glass, and dense plastics. The PowerChekPlus x-ray inspection unit detects and rejects many contaminants, as well as scans for missing or broken product, detects package voids, and confirms fill levels to guarantee product and package integrity. Both systems utilize low-energy x-ray technology for sensitivity and simplicity.

Metal detectors on board include two conveyorized units of differing frequencies that detect and eliminate metal contamination in a wide variety of packaged and loose products. The new PowerPhasePRO metal detector offers three frequency operation, one-pass automatic set-up and a touch-screen interface. The PowerPhasePLUS, an ultra-high-frequency metal detector, is able to operate in excess of 800kHz and offers increased sensitivity, particularly to non-ferrous and stainless steel contaminants.
